Comparing This Season to Last..............
The disappointing result, away to Athletic Bilbao, leaves Real Madrid in fourth place in the La Liga table.
Real Madrid have 28 points from the 14 games played.
In third place, directly above us, Atletico Madrid have accumulated 30 points from those same 14 games.
In second place are Valencia, who play today when they travel to take on Getafe, Valencia from 13 games have accumulated 31 points.
Sitting on top of the La Liga table are our rivals from Catalan, Barcelona. Despite dropping two points at home to Celta Viga, Barcelona are still unbeaten this season and have 36 points from the 14 games played, 8 points more than Real Madrid.
Compare this season to last season and we find that Real Madrid had accumulated 34 points from the 14 games played, 6 more than this season.
Those figures alone confirm that this season hasn`t gotten off to the solid start Zinedine Zidane would have wanted in the defence of the La Liga title won in 2016 / 2017!
Can, over the coming months, Real Madrid address the matter in satisfactory fashion?
